Dog sought after biting incident in South Lake Tahoe

Published: Tuesday, Mar. 18, 2014 - 5:55 pm

El Dorado County Animal Services officials are looking for a dog that bit a South Lake Tahoe man Sunday.

The incident occurred about 6 p.m. in the area of Tahoe Keys Boulevard and Washington Avenue in South Lake Tahoe when the man encountered a dog roaming in the neighborhood and attempted to read the dog’s tags, according to a county news release.

The dog is described as a medium-size, husky-type breed with fluffy gray and white fur, and wearing a blue collar and tags.

Animals Services officials would like to speak with the dog’s owner to verify that the dog is current on its rabies vaccinations so that the man does not have to have post-exposure rabies treatments.

Anyone with information is asked to call Animal Services at (530) 573-7925.

Call The Bee’s Cathy Locke, (916) 321-5287.
